IP PDU SOLUTIONS

Basic PDUs still have their place in the data center, but ideally, operators should have greater visibility into the performance of mission-critical equipment. For colocation facilities, real-time, remote power monitoring is essential for accurate client billing. For data centers in general, the ability to track energy consumption patterns as in-depth as an individual server or switch adds an entirely new layer of quality: visibility into the performance of your facility both on the macro and micro levels.

Switched PDUs take that quality to the next level. Individual outlets on a specific PDU can actually be disabled remotely if, for instance, a particular server is experiencing a problem and needs to be power cycled. Consider another example, in which the monitored current is coming dangerously close to exceeding a pre-designated threshold for a certain rack. With a switched PDU, technicians will automatically be notified of this issue. They will then have the option of dealing with the situation remotely, perhaps by cutting power delivery to non-essential servers in that row until they’re able to find a more permanent solution. We supply networked, intelligent rack PDUs in 4 versions, namely monitored (remote control via ip), outlet monitored, outlet switched and outlet monitored and switched.

Our solutions help small, midsize, enterprise and colocation datacenters to increase efficiency, raise productivity and improve reliability. They provide important insights on how to improve energy efficiency in datacenters and other locations, help eliminate human error and can operate in extreme environments. With monitoring and alarming features that spot problems before they occur and physical design elements that adapt to the toughest conditions, our solution protects your critical systems under any circumstances.

Our solutions enable you to:
+ Prevent downtime due to overloads or human error
+ Identify hot spots or overcooling
+ Optimally balance loads per rack
+ Identify ghost servers, high power consumption equipment and stranded capacity
+ Comply with Service Level Agreements (SLAs)

PRODUCT FEATURES

Security
Our PDUs support the most stringent security protocols in the market in order to prevent unauthorized access (256 bit AES encryption, Radius, SNMPv3, user permissions, SSH, SSL, HTTPS).

Hydraulic-magnetic Circuit Breakers
Our PDUs are equipped with highly reliable hydraulic-magnetic circuit breakers which are not affected by ambient temperature and support delay curves appropriate for IT-equipment. Also, our solutions proactively monitor the status of the breakers in order to prevent downtime due to server power supply failure or overloads.

Energy Efficient Latching Relays
Our PDUs are equipped with energy efficient, bi-stable latching relays. These relays consume up to 70% less energy than alternatives, make outlet switching safer and can be configured in such a way that in case of PDU failure the power distribution to the rack is maintained.

Kwh Metering Accuracy
All our PDUs feature +/- 1% billing grade accuracy enabling precise allocation of datacenter expenses.

Full Color Range
Exagate PDUs are available in any RAL-colour. Coloured PDUs make it easier to reduce human errors, identify power feeds and lowering the risk of unplanned downtime.

Secure Locking Outlets
As an option Exagate intelligent rack PDUs can be equipped with lockable outlets preventing power cords from coming unplugged due to human error or vibration.

Residual Current Monitoring Option
By measuring current flowing in the ground wire, our residual current monitoring option reduces the risk of electric shock. PDUs equipped with residual current monitoring dramatically reduce the burden of regulatory auditing.

Cascading Option
In order to save on network ports and manage multiple devices from one IP address we offer the opportunity to daisychain up to 8 PDUs using Cat5/6 cable.

Environmental Monitoring Devices (EMD)
We provide optional a broad range of sensors, for example temperature and humidity-, waterleak-, door position-, airflow-, smoke detection- and vibration sensors.

Network Protocols
Our PDUs support HTTP(s), SSH, RS-232 (Serial), SNMP v1/v2/v3, SMTP and Modbus

Circuit Breaker Trip Alarming
Our solutions pro-actively monitor the status of the circuit breakers (voltage and current monitoring) and will send you an alert in case a circuit breaker has tripped.

Operating Temperature
Exagate PDUs support a maximum operating temperature of up to 60 degrees Celsius for reliable performance in dense, high heat environments.

Interoperability with third party software
If you would like to centrally manage all PDUs in your datacenter this is possible. Our solutions offer the option to communicate the status of rack-level power and environmental information to our proprietary SmartPack Datacenter Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution or a third-party solution such as Power IQ.

One of the most important values that a datacenter should pay attention to is the energy efficiency. Most datacenters use the the power usage effectiveness (PUE) ratio for this. PUE is calculated as the ratio of the total energy consumed by a facility related to the IT-equipment in that facility.

Our solutions help small, midsize, enterprise and colocation datacenters to increase efficiency, raise productivity and improve reliability. They provide important insights on how to improve energy efficiency in datacenters and other locations, help eliminate human error and can operate in extreme environments. With monitoring and alarming features that spot problems before they occur and physical design elements that adapt to the toughest conditions, our solution protects your critical systems under any circumstances.
